Billy Reeves talks to Bruce Soord, main man of The Pineapple Thief re: the new CD bookset of ‘The Soord Sessions vols 1-4’, about his new studio and the journey thereto. Is Bruce optimistic about the tour, and the future of streaming? And who kicked him out of the attic? Plus we’ll hear obscurities and fan-favourites from the set.

 

NEW music from White Moth Black Butterfly, Klone and Giancarlo Erra too – find yourself a comfy chair for Mr Erra’s new single, and a plump cushion. And, as it's you, go on then, some Ozric Tentacles.

Podcast 131 - Richard Barbieri speaks!

Mr Barbieri is probably best known for his tours of duty with two of Great Britain’s most important and enduring artbands: Japan and Porcupine Tree, he also makes his own solo records with a few choice chums. His newie is the follow-up to the expansive ‘Planets + Persona’, an introspective lucid mood piece entitled ‘Under A Spell’, which dovetails nicely with the new breed of Bandcamp bedroom heroes and the Streatham nu-jazz scene. Richard joins Billy Reeves via Kscopelink™ to talk post-Pandemic, Percy Jones and lucid dreams.
